Geisel was best known by the pseudonym 'Dr. Seuss': pen name, nom de plume, assumed name, false name, alias, professional name, sobriquet, stage name, nom de guerre.
With a fake name comes a fake persona, a constructed character, a story.
Everyone comes with a story, clues to the personality. And often the story is not true, everyone perceives in a different way. With the fake story we get Hooks on which to build beliefs.
I am a mother, a sister, a daughter and a friend. But none of these ideas describe me. So to create the persona from scratch is not too far from the reality.
The art world loves the story. The persona of the artist overtook the quality of the art work long ago. Most artists use this knowledge, playing on the masquerade that they can create. Writers use pen names, women become men to gain respect, commercials use association to sell products.
